Setting up the FRITZ!Box for use with a fiber optic connection

If you use the FRITZ!Box with a fiber optic modem, you can also use it on a fiber optic connection. Since the FRITZ!Box establishes and controls its own Internet connection over the fiber optic modem, all FRITZ!Box functions (such as such as the firewall, parental controls, MyFRITZ!) are also available without restriction in this operating mode.

Note:The terms "fiber optic connection" or "Fiber to the Home" (FTTH) are used for Internet connections where the fiber optic lines lead to a fiber optic modem in the home.

1 Connecting the fiber optic modem and the FRITZ!Box

  1. Connect the fiber optic modem to the fiber optic socket according to the instructions provided by your Internet service provider.
  2. Use a network cable to connect the LAN port on the fiber optic modem to the "WAN" port on the FRITZ!Box.
  3. Connect a computer to the FRITZ!Box over wireless LAN or use a network cable to connect it to an available LAN port on the FRITZ!Box.
